First we had Donald the anti-immigrant asshat. Next was Donald the misogynist. Later, Donald the Islamophobe. Then last week we saw a new incarnation of this festering pustule who dares to call himself a human being: Donald who thinks being handicapped is funny.
Today, he has morphed yet again. Now he is Donald the extortionist.
Speaking to a crowd in Georgia (and no doubt Trump will claim 500,000 were in attendance), Trump said he thinks it would be a great idea to charge CNN for his appearance at the next debate, which is scheduled for Tuesday, December 15:
“How about I tell CNN, who doesn’t treat me properly…I’m not gonna do the next debate, okay? I won’t do the debate unless they pay me $5 million, all of which goes to wounded warriors or goes to vets.”
How about we all yawn and say we could care less if you show or not?
“The problem is they’ll say ‘Trump is chicken.’ One thing I’m not is chicken, okay?”
You may not be chicken, Donald, but you are most certainly chickenshit. I know because I saw a video of it. I can’t find the video now, but I saw it, so it happened.
This gigantic bag of fecal droppings with a hamster atop it also wrote a letter to CNN in which he stated:
“While I refuse to brag, and as you know very well, this tremendous increase in viewer interest and advertising is due 100% to ‘Donald J. Trump.’
“I believe that all profits from this broadcast should go to various VETERANS groups, a list of which I will send to you in the near future.”
If veterans matter that much to you, Mr. Trump, how about you take out your checkbook and write them a check for say….$100 million. You’re a billionaire, so it’d be a drop in the bucket for you. And you can even take it off your taxes. Hey, that makes great business sense!
What I am about to say has been building for months now: Donald Trump may well be the most dangerous man in America. I used to think that title belonged to Ted Cruz, but now I think Trump has supplanted him in that regard.
If Trump wants $5 or $5 million, I say let him take a hike and not participate in the debate. He is issuing an empty threat he will never follow through on. Why do I say that? Because a narcissist like Donald Trump cannot stand the thought of not being on camera and spreading his poison. It’s what he lives for.
